There's never been a better idea than rolling up pizza into a bun. Try this scrumptious snack when your next pizza craving hits!
Combine active dry yeast with warm water and sugar. The water needs to be at a temperature of around 100°F for the yeast to activate so it’s best to use a thermometer. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes. It should double in size and be foamy at the top.
Meanwhile, melt your coconut oil over low heat. Ensure the coconut oil is also not heated above 100°F.
Once dough has proofed, lightly flour a clean dry surface or countertop and roll out the dough to approximately a 16” x 16” square.
Add the pizza sauce, vegan cheese, and toppings to the surface of the dough, but leave a 1” edge on one side of the dough free from sauce and fillings. That will be the outside edge when you roll the dough up.
Place all the buns in a baking pan that's been oiled with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Leave a little bit of space around each bun. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and a tea towel and leave it in a warm dark place for another 2 hours to proof.
Once the rolls are proofed, preheat oven to 350°F and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden and crispy on top and the cheese is melted. Serve slightly warm!
To speed up the proofing process, you can also use a quick rise yeast instead of an active dry yeast. The recipe for that dough is available in the hot for food cookbook!
